Banana Nut Bread

*I am not the photographer of this picture, or probably any other picture I use on this blog. I'm lucky if my food comes out edible, let alone looks like it!
A little background. I love Banana Bread! In my opinion it's best served cold with a TON of butter. Yum! I honestly am just not a cook though - or a baker. I always had the idea in my head that any kind of bread is hard to make, so I never tried. Until today. And are you kidding me? This was like the easiest thing I've ever done! This is very exciting to me because now I can stuff my face with Banana Bread any time I please. Enjoy this very easy, VERY yummy recipe.
1/3 c butter or margarine
1 c sugar
3 large ripe bananas
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 c flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 T cinnamon
3/4 c finely chopped nuts
Mix together butter, sugar, bananas, eggs, and vanilla. In a separate bowl mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nuts. Add to creamy mixture and mix until blended. Pour into greased loaf pan and bake at 350 for 50-60 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean. Makes one large loaf or two small loaves.

I use the same amount of applesauce instead of butter in the recipe. It is extra moist and that way I can justify more on top when cooked!
